The best thing I can tell you is keep an eye on your local & surrounding area craigslists for people selling frags or tearing down their tanks, and try to find local
forums/clubs. I just came back from a local frag swap earlier today where I picked up 6 ricordeas, 3 nice frags of zoas, two different montipora digitatas, and an acan lord.... 12 nice pieces for $80 (average of less
than $7 each!!!), and they're all beautiful
colors that you just don't find in the LFS
's, or will pay out the nose for if you do. I won't order online, because I refuse to pay $35 or more for shipping, negating any kind of deal you may be getting....... With some patience, I'm filling my tank quite nicely from all local deals.
